    Comments about Oakton pH Spear Waterproof Pocket pH Testr?:

    I was concerned about fouling or bad readings with such a soft and sticky medium. However the unit is well designed to deal with this and cleaning it is not a problem. Easy to store with the cap that contains the storage solution

    • Q:

      Best advice for storage and cleaning after each use. This tester will be used for jellies, jams, etc.

      • STAFF EXPERT

        A:

        Rinse the electrode with tap water or electrode cleaning solution, 35655-06, after each
        measurement.
        If possible, keep a small piece of paper or sponge in the electrode cap – moistened
        with electrode storage solution, 35655-04, (NOT de-ionized water) – and close
        the cap over the electrode.

    • Q:

      Does the entire glass bulb need to be inserted into the product being measured to obtain an accurate reading? If so, is that the case for all spear type electrodes?
      Asked on 1/4/2016 by Aaron

      1 answer

      • STAFF EXPERT

        A:

        All electrodes require the bulb be immersed completely.

      • STAFF EXPERT

        A:

        Yes, this should work just fine as this is recommended for semi-solid samples. I would advise that due to the nature of the application the probe be thoroughly cleaned at a regular interval to prevent any build up on the probe measuring end and to prevent the junction on the probe tip from being clogged.

    • Q:

      I am curious to find out if this item is compatable or will work in High alkaline baths . they are alkalinity of about 12 and ph of around 11.5 to 12 with temps around 150 degrees
      Also can this be used in acid baths .
      or is this probe / meter not chemical resistant?
      Asked on 1/30/2014 by Debra from Kentwood, Mi

      1 answer

      • STAFF EXPERT

        A:

        The measuring part of the sensor is glass and it is housed in a plastic material, Styrene Acrylonitrile (SAN). You may be better of going with a 35634-14 and an all glass electrode like the 05998-30.

      Hi can this meter be used in biopharma industry for ph of cell culture suspension? Is it made up of VHP resistant materials?

      • STAFF EXPERT

        A:

        This product is not designed to be sterilized, and has not been tested with vaporized hydrogen peroxide. It can be used to measure the pH of liquid cell cultures.

    • Q:

      What is the minimum volume required in a 2 mL tube for this probe to measure pH? Would ~300 uL be enough?
      Asked on 2/12/2013 by Ryan from Boston

      1 answer

      • STAFF EXPERT

        A:

        We do not have an exact volume - we can only say that the tip diameter is approx 7mm at it's greatest (it is conical or spear shaped, and it needs to be submersed about 6mm. If 300 uL can be displaced by the probe enough to immerse it 6 mm it will work well.
        The sensor only requires about 20 uL of fluid - but that will depend upon the shape of the container it is placed in as well.

    • Q:

      Can this be used to measure PH of sausages, salami, or fermented meats? Does it have a minimum water activity (aW)requirement for the electrode to work?
      Asked on 12/28/2012 by Kyle from West Virginia

      1 answer

      • STAFF EXPERT

        A:

        This pH spear is what we recommend for testing the pH of meats and cheeses. Water Activity is not a parameter tested - generally is has to do with water present. Since this meter utilizes such a low volume of water to make a measurement - I estimate the volume is about 50 uL. The greater diameter of the spear tip is 7 mm and it need to be submerged or inserted about 6 mm to obtain a reading.

    • Q:

      can this product be used to test ph levels in crushed pepper?
      Asked on 12/3/2012 by David from Hagatna Guam

      1 answer

      • STAFF EXPERT

        A:

        Yes, as long as the crushed pepper is still wet. This will not determine the pH of dry products.
